of targeting key groups like students, women and latino voters. our political team writing one of the most powerful underkurnlt currents of this election is the democratic advantage for the democrats. every poll has found and the bottom line, demography is an advantage for president obama and a challenge for mitt romney. let me bring in the senior political editor, mark murray. mark prior to the poll last week we saw hugely with women. that's closed depending on the polls we've looked at. we continue to see a huge leak with the president with the latino voters. the issue is demographics in the latino community shows up to vote if they support the president. >> that's right. enthusiasm does matter, but in a way look at this election is demography, is destiny. the nbc/"wall street journal" pollsters did something interesting where they merged the data from this summer as well as the two big sur vas in september and measured it with the exit polls from 2008. actually, it showed some erosion for president obama from 2008 with white independents. those folks obama narrowly lost in 2008 and he's

and party so ail len yated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. why shouldn't the campaign want that part, a blupt comment comm is true and will matter come election night? >> it's actually very similar to something he said before. >> absolutely. >> a year ago at univision forum where he talked about how he would run against republicans and said essentially all he would have to do is run debate clips from the republican presidential primary and the republicans were saying things about illegal immigrants and things like that and saying sort of -- not necessarily disparaging comments but framing them in a way that might not be to people's likings and interesting. i think they tried to have it off the record and speaks to both campaigns overly cautious in the last 13 days. >> yeah. >> they don't want to draw attention to anything that will turn in to a twitter moment, a youtube moment. so that i think is really what is behind this but i think ultimately it's pretty harmless comment. >> yeah. >> that he made. and a true comment. >> he said it's not a rela

to important demographic groups, including women, latino and white men. part of getting those voters to the polls including mining into the personal lives. "the new york times" writes the campaign has planted software to see if they frequent evangelical or erotic websites. voters with religious websites might have religion friendly messages when they return to the campaign's website. thank you so much for your time. you wrote about this. we know that retailers do this. they study our profile and study where we like to shop. it's logical that the campaigns would be doing this. >> absolutely. this is the cutting edge of using all the tools available to them. i think the issue is, though, a lot is done to influence voting habits. i wrote a book called "the power of habit" that looks at how target tries to take advantage of shoppers to figure out who is pregnant. the fact campaigns are doing it shouldn't be surprised. they feel that exam pains and politics are different from stores and retailers. the privacy of the voting booth they think extending into their homes and that's not true. >
and said i've been voting my he whole life. i'm 88 and 90 years old, and now i can't vote. latino voters say i'm put under this requirement possibly that cannot be obtained. i cannot get my i.d. under these circumstances. is it harder to get people to support felons in some cases who have been convicted of obviously violent crimes? is that part of the roadblock at all or not? >> yeah. what helps here is for folks to really focus on just what a wide swath of people and month gets impacted. you know, we heard from charles dutton today on the tv show "the rock" back in the '90s who for 31 years after he got out of prison could not vote paying millions of dollars and talking about how he was subjected to taxation without representation even after he served his time. it helps folks to focus on the history. these laws were put in place for a reason. they were put in place as a wave right after the civil war. in states like virginia you talked about earlier it said quite plainly the person that made the argument for this law in 1901 made it very plain. he said because of this law, the darky wil
really have a huge turnout, latino voters, the numbers are there, but the enthusiasm, at least according to the polling, shows that the republicans have the advantage and that's why this race remains tight for romney. what's your take on this high-interest and enthusiasm, at least if the numbers are right, higher among republicans? >> i think at the beginning of the year, it was a real problem for democrat, i think the republicans led in high interest or enthusiasm by 10, 12%. now if that poll is correct it is down to 2%, which is statistically insignificant. i think since the convention, democratic interest has gone way up and republican interest has gone down slightly. so, i think it is not going to be much of a difference, 75% republicans, 73% democrats vote, the president wins in all those battleground states, democrats have a registration. the president wins, maybe even going away in those states. so i think the enthusiasm gap that exists in the beginning of the year has been pretty much narrowed, tamron. >> it is interesting. i want to talk about your home state you pennsylvania, o

later and latino voters where your party could perhaps have a little bit of sway if the president underperforms with the groups or perhaps your party pick off a few people within those groups of voters, you could build some traction here. so my question is not want to be gotcha but a legitimate one. what is governor romney's immigration policy if he's elected? >> i think he spelled it out in the debate. for legal immigration. he explained that the wife's father was an immigrant and important to give 'em employeers the tools to determine if the folks hiring are here legally. that's laid out last night. >> eugene, self deportation doesn't mean self deportation and supports a version of the dream act. is there a definitive policy that this candidate has discussed regarding immigration or are people like jonathan picking at pieces and not forming a total story after what his immigration policy would be? >> there was a definitive policy back in the primaries. mitt romney would have vetoed the dream act. his policy for dealing with it, 12 million illegal immigrants is self deportation,
